Late Night Jazz/Poetry/Song Session

Elgar Room, Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AP

Michael Horovitz’s Jazz Poetry SuperJam will bring to the Elgar Room solo & duo performances by songpoet-musician Vanessa Vie & bebop troubadour Horovitz. Vanessa & Michael will soon be issuing their first joint CD & booklet, ‘Lyrical Soulmates’. The cabaret will also project extended jamming by the William Blake Klezmatrix Band, which will on this occasion consist of Peter Lemer’s scintillating pianistics, Annie Whitehead’s expressionist trombone & vocals, & Horovitz’s anglo-saxophone. As well as original settings of Blake’s lyrics, the band will perform a diversity of jazzpoems, soundpoems, Klezmer & other folk music & song, plus blues, calypso & original jazz compositions & improvisations. Danah Zohar wrote in Streetlife that a previous SuperJam was “. . . to be entertained at a party of best friends by a limitlessly talented group of artists”.
